I prefer simple micellar water to this as I feel it cleanses more and moves my makeup better. I feel fresher afterwards. This does feel more like water though, so perhaps those who have had bad reactions to other products could try this.

Can over spill with this packaging versus similar products that have more of a "squeeze" bottle. This one just has a simple opening. Not a big deal though, easily mitigated by being a bit more careful.

I switched to l'oreal because I wanted to remove spots on my face. I've been using the l'oreal micellar for almost a month now and compared to the other toners I've used in the past, my skin absolutely loves this toner. I have very sensitive skin by the way, so after applying this toner my skin doesn't dry out at all...throughout the day. I use this toner with the l'oreal triple active day cream for sensitive skin. So far i like the results. I just don't like the smell of the toner on the cotton pad after I've wiped my face a couple of times but otherwise I'm happy with the product. ....But I still get blackheads and zits on my face at least once a week. Still trying to figure out how I'm gonna solve this problem...but I use benzac at the moment to get rid of the zits/pimples.

Personally, I find this product to be just as good as my Bioderma, but at a much lower price. I use it in the mornings only to clean my face and I notice that it does remove sebum very well. I never use it straight on a face full of make-up. I prefer a double-cleansing for that: first with an oil, then with a foaming cleanser. This did not irritate or dry my skin. I would repurchase.

Bought this micellar water and the Garnier Micellar water at the same time and tried this one first.

I loved it! Apply some product to a cotton pad, swipe over face and watch as makeup comes away. My mascara (not waterproof) put up a bit of a fight, but came away after a few extra passes over. Finished with my trusty Dove Cleansing Cloths, and they came away still white! No mascara residue there.

This formula was gentle on my eyes, a big concern for me because of my contact lenses!

The only downside is that the bottle/lid is terrible for dispensing some product without dribbling it all over the lid and down the side. Also, this bottle is about half the size of the Garnier one for around the same price, so more bang for your buck there, but I prefer the L'Oreal.

When I finally finish the Garnier bottle (that doesn't work as well in my opinion), I'll be back to buying L'Oreal.

I had high hopes for this micellar water. I had previously been using L'Oreal's genesis gel cleanser which was the most effective makeup remover I had ever purchased, and was looking for a product that was effective at removing makeup and had at least some other benefits to the skin.

Firstly and most importantly, this product is not an effective makeup remover for me in that it doesn't remove my mascara well and I find it irritating to my eyes.

Secondly the bottle is terrible for dispensing as the product has a water-like consistency and pours out of the hole far too easily and it is difficult to control dispensing.

Thirdly, my skin is slightly irritated and reddened after use. I also feel like there is a greasy film on my face after use.

It's okay at removing foundation and eyeshadow, so I used it up for the sake of using it up. Will not repurchase.

I use Loreal's micellar water as a 2nd step of my skin care routine rather than the first make up remover. After already removing my make up with a foaming cleanser, I use it to remove the remainings of my make up and mainly to soothe and tone my skin. I have found it very useful for this purpose, it leaves my skin feeling very pure and does not dry it at all. It soothes any kind of break out that I might have, leaves the skin glowing and after using it for few weeks I found it also helped with clogged pores. The product does take a minute or two to dry, but I don't find that a problem. I think it's a very good product for its price and I have even used it as a replacement for some more expensive high-end skin cleansers and toners that I had previously used as I think this one does as good of a job.

As with other micellar waters I've tried, I don't use them to take off my full face of makeup but use them more as an eye makeup remover instead. The best one I've found so far is still BioDerma, but as that can be a bit on the pricey side here in the UK, I'm always on the lookout for alternatives.

This one was OK. It did remove my eye makeup pretty well, although I think it took a few more swipes with the cotton pad/ball compared with the BioDerma. It struggled a bit with my mascara, both normal and waterproof, although it made pretty light work of my gel eyeliner which did surprise me as this was the one thing I thought it would struggle with.

A definite plus point for me is that this one's fragrance free. I don't like the idea of putting anything fragranced on my face, but especially on or near my eyes which have a tendency to be on the sensitive side and react badly to overly-scented products.

Overall I don't think I would go out to specifically repurchase this, but if it was on offer somewhere I would probably pick up a couple of bottles.

I am just finishing up my second bottle and I just love I just love this stuff! I used a cotton pad and I loved how it removed all of my makeup while feeling fresh and cleansed. It literally feels like water. I recommend this to anybody that needs an affordable way to remove makeup easily and tired of buying makeup wipes. It also doesn't dry out my skin which is the most important thing. I am probably going to try the Garnier Micellar once I'm done with this bottle and update this review with a comparison in the future.

-Affordable ($7 on sale!)
-Feels like water
-Removes makeup (have not tested on waterproof mascara)

-Leaves a little sticky residue (but it rinses clean and I follow up with using a cleanser)

Update: This micellar water does not remove waterproof mascara very easily. The mascara flakes off and I end up tugging the eye area (which is not ideal). It takes some time to remove it completely. I use the Maybelline the Rocket Waterproof mascara.
